Jazz on the Tube’s Ken McCarthy talks about a unique way to think about and enjoy music.
The example he gives in the second half of the video comes from a presentation by Lionel Leinwand at the Jalopy Theater in Brooklyn.

The complete presentation
This is a talk I gave about something we can all do to appreciate music even more deeply.
Then I give an example of this approach in action in the hands of an inspired educator/performer.
The example happens to come from a genre called “Barrelhouse Blues,” which had its flowering about 100 years ago in the South among African-American youth.
But this approach to music appreciation can be adapted to any genre to good effect. It just takes a little imagination.
It will make a lot more sense when you experience it firsthand.
